Spatial Engineering

Master's programme

A two-year, international master's programme

The two-year Master’s programme in Spatial Engineering at the University of Twente is a full-time, internationally oriented programme. English is the basic language to communicate with students from other nationalities. Upon successful completion you are entitled to the degree Master of Science. The programme is worth 120 credits and is taught entirely in English. It will prepare you for an international career, while also keeping you in touch with the Dutch context.

Programme structure

In the first year of the Master’s in Spatial Engineering, you will concentrate on three existing, real-life consultancy projects in the field of:

  1. disaster-proof cities;
  2. food and water security;
  3. man-induced earthquakes and 3D damage assessment.

You will benefit from specialist, in-depth teaching, combined with project learning activities, group work and a visit to a project area. Our aim at the University of Twente is to help you acquire maximum understanding and inspiration, while at the same time offering you plenty of possibilities for personal specialization.

In the second year you will deepen your knowledge by carrying out a substantial research project in a field in which you wish to specialize. You will also gain (international) work experience.


First-run of our Master Spatial Engineering

Spatial Engineering is a new master’s programme. The University of Twente is still in the process of having the programme officially accredited and registered. We expect to have the programme officially accredited and registered before the first Spatial Engineers will graduate in 2019! Therefore we are pleased to announce that registration for September 2017 is open!

Until the formal accreditation of the programme, you will be registered in our renowned Master’s Geo-information Science and Earth Observation. This Master’s is formally recognized by the Dutch Ministry of Education, Culture and Science, based on accreditation of the programmes by the Netherlands-Flemish Accreditation Organisation (NVAO).
